London, Feb 9 (ANI): Dame Helen Mirren is thrilled Prince William decided to marry Kate Middleton, who the Oscar-winner says is a 'very special' person to take on the challenges of becoming a royal.
The second-in-line for the throne is set to tie the knot with Middleton, who is not part of the aristocracy, in April (11).
And Mirren, who won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the prince's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, is thrilled William has decided to marry for love rather than to satisfy royal protocol.
"I love where she comes from and who she is. You see them together and they're easy with each other. They look at each other with genuine interest and love, they make each other laugh.
It takes a very special person to step into that world," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Seven magazine. (ANI)
